Amazing, excruciating poem, Abby
Was this prompted by Robert Desnos?
@JKoo nope. it was literally a rant that I went on to my father on the phone, and he texted me after I hung up and said "you realize you literally just wrote a poem while crying out loud, right?"
That's awesome. :)
Google "Desnos If You Knew," though, you'll like it!
This is amazing! :)
Brilliant drive to this poem. The repeating line is so well distributed with meaning and punch. And your line breaks give me a chill.
